Spell checkers and homonyms

This funny poem shows how badly spell checkers deal with homonyms. It was sent in by a fellow VA to the VAIG e-list (VA International Group). There are no apostrophes either.

SPELL CHECKER (author unknown, but hats off to them!)

Eye halve a spelling checker;
It came with my pea sea.
It plainly marks four my revue,
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word,
And weight four it two say,
Weather eye am wrong oar write;
It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid,
It nose bee fore two long.
And eye can put the error rite;
Its rare lea ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it;
I am shore your pleased two no,
Its letter perfect awl the weigh.
My spell checker tolled me sew!
